NORDLAM LOCATION

L O C A T I O N Magdeburg – Right in the heart of Europe History In the 1930s large gasworks were erected at the site in Magdeburg-Rothensee, which produced gas as a bi-product of coal, to supply the city of Magdeburg. During the Second World War the gasworks were heavily bombed and although they were rebuilt during the GDR era, they were however demolished after German reunification.

LOGISTICS Magdeburg is located in the heart of Europe and has excellent connections to the international network of motorways (on the important East-West and North-South junction). The site has two rail connections and a tributary of the Elbe marks one of its boundaries.

In 2001, work began on restoring the site and on the construction of the glulam plant. Today, the property has been completely transformed and covers a total area of around 11 hectares. Coal dust has made way for the fragrance of spruce.

NORDLAM CORPORATE CULTURE

Certification Our quality inspections are not just limited to the standard third party monitoring processes set by the testing institutes. The conscientious and irreplaceable work of our employees at each and every stage of the process also plays a very important role. In addition to satisfying aesthetic standards, the structural integrity of the product is monitored and checked at a number of stages of the production process, starting with the sorting of the lumber.

NORDLAM has the major glulam certification Type “A” complying. with DIN 1052-1 and the declaration of conformity to ÖNORM EN 386. Nordlam has been approved for the production of the glulam grades BS11, BS16 and BS18. In 2007 Nordlam was given permission to mark its products with the CE-symbol complying with EN 14080 and therefore also produce the strength classes GL24 h/c, GL 28 h/c, GL 32 h/c and the highest strength class GL 36 h/c.

Glulam of the very highest quality is produced by combining human intelligence with technological capability.

Company philosophy The company name NORDLAM is based on the strong timber culture which we associate with Nordic countries. The proximity to this important source of renewable raw material was an important reason for choosing the location of the site. Careful use of wood as a valuable resource is of great importance to us. The combination of aesthetic factors and high efficiency, known attributes of wood, are important guiding principles in our daily work. Nordlam is not only notable for its high production capacity but also it’s ability to maintain high technological standards. First rate product quality, an excellent delivery service, flexibility and a high level of reliability are standards upon which Nordlam has built its company philosophy and these are realised by our qualified employees throughout the manufacturing process.

CONSTRUCTION MATERIAL BSH

F ascinating constr u ction m aterial Glulam

Nordlam is a glulam manufacturer with years of experience in the production and sales of top quality glulam, also called BSH in Europe.

A special construction material Glulam is an industrially manufactured product. Its purpose is to be load bearing and it is able to carry about 80% more weight than solid timber beams. During production, individual smaller sections of wood are kiln dried, stacked and then glued together. Both straight and curved beams are made this way. As a result of the very nature of the production process, glulam has high dimensional stability and high fracture resistance. Glulam beams meet all the official German building authority requirements and are subject to regular quality monitoring complying with DIN1052 for load-bearing timber parts. Glulam is ideally suited for projects covering wide spans that carry heavy loads due to its dimensional stability, and for projects where appearance matters.

Ecology Environmental considerations are at the heart of public concern more than ever before. One highly efficient way of complying with this new awareness, is the use of glulam in construction. Being both an ecologically sound as well as a renewable material, the effect it has on the environment during processing is minimal compared to other materials. Over and above this: The use of wood even promotes reforestation and therefore plays a role in regenerating woods which are vital for maintaining the eco-system. At the end of the day, it is forests which guarantee us a supply of oxygen, the basis for all life.

NORDLAM-PROPERTIES > High quality > Quality controlled production > Precise and clean cuts > Accurate, first rate planing > Careful storage > Direct, prompt access to individual components > Extensive range of products in stock

Fire resistance Although it is a flammable material, glulam has excellent fire-resistant properties. It chars evenly as there are no cracks or gaps, and the charred layer forms a protective coating that delays the flames from spreading inwards. Whilst the burning does reduce the mass of the material, it does not impair its mechanical properties. Compared to other materials, wood does not suddenly give way, instead the construction breaks down slowly and gradually.

Earthquake-resistance The structural and dimensional stability of glulam makes it highly resistant to the forces of an earthquake. The material is five times lighter than reinforced concrete and fifteen times as light as steel. Due to its low relative weight and extraordinary mechanical resistance, the forces exerted during an earthquake can be significantly absorbed.

PRODUCTION BSH

S tate - of - the - art glulam constructions Technology and humanity If you walk through the production at Nordlam, you will be surrounded by the fragrance of wood. It serves as a reminder of the traditional values of Nordic countries, where respect for nature and the environment remain key to this day. Our employees embrace these values every day with passion, commitment and a sense of responsibility. Through the perfect interplay of human intelligence and technological capability, products are created that reflect their inner and outer value: Standard glulam beams that meet even the strictest technical and visual quality requirements. The unique NORDLAM quality is guaranteed thanks to careful processing, state of the art quality control systems and continuous production monitoring.

GUARANTEE Supports and frames made of glulam in commercial and private construction have proved to be more structurally stable than those made of solid wood. Professionally installed and surface-treated, Nordlam glulam supports last more than a lifetime.

In times of continually changing market requirements and customer needs, a flexible and dynamic workforce is imperative for the success of the company.

nordlam duolam

Duolam Product description Softwood beams are produced by gluing two solid timber pieces together with the grain running parallel and the end sections the same size. The result of this process is larger or more structurally stable sections Application DUO beams are particularly suited for applications which require building components with a high level of structural stability. Some examples are the construction of air-tight buildings, timber frame constructions, building frames or loft conversions. Here the benefits come into their own especially for visually sophisticated constructions that need to satisfy high architectural, aesthetic or design demands. In particular, if it is preferable to avoid the use of popular timber treatment chemicals, then this building material is perfect. Duo/Trio beams can be used in both indoor and covered outdoor areas (application class 1 and 2 which comply with DIN 1052). As with normal solid wood, extreme climatic changes should be avoided e.g. direct exposure to the elements. DUO beams are suitable for use as building components which are exposed to aggressive chemicals.
